This recording is indeed the Hadyn Quartet with Harry McDonough the lead tenor. It was recorded on September 9, 1908, the year that Harry Von Tilzer wrote this great American standard.

Thanks for putting this in the archive.

Lead tenor is Harry MacDonough, group is "Haydn", this file is processed to death.
